From a blog called PRETTYUGLY., some Philly rowhouse appreciation: "The city is awash in rowhouses, and they can be found throughout the city’s North, Northeast, and South sides. And there are numerous eclectic variations on the rowhouse, including Queen Anne, Victorian, Romanesque, German, and Italianate, even Dutch-influenced ones with gable roofs. The lone exception is much of West Philadelphia, a place where various Victorian styles – sometimes detached, and usually intricately decorated – are the norm. Fishtown, along with neighboring NoLibs, appeared to be the crux of Philadelphia’s infill rowhouse construction, which was a deciding factor in me visiting the city. The rich quality and limit-pushing of the designs built by local talent Onion Flats instantly made me a fan." Full post with photos here.
